Vuzix (NASDAQ:VUZI) Revolutionizes the Display Technology Industry with Introduction of Large Format Waveguide Design and Manufacturing

  • Waveguide form factors can range from several inches diagonally to several feet or more

ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of smart glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, is pleased to announce that it now has the unique capability to design and produce large format waveguides in its state-of-the-art waveguide production facility, a cutting-edge innovation that will redefine the way heads-up visual content is experienced.

Large format waveguides, which can range in diagonal size from several inches to several feet or more, represent a significant leap forward in display technology, offering unparalleled clarity, brightness, and immersion. They can be one-quarter inch thick and provide monochrome or full color visuals. These innovative waveguides are designed to enable the creation of large-scale see-through displays with impressive visual fidelity, enabling use cases in the automotive, retail, medical, enterprise, aviation and defense industries, among others.

At the heart of this breakthrough technology is the ability to efficiently guide light in and throughout a glass panel, resulting in vibrant images that maintain their brilliance even in well-lit indoor environments. This transformative feature ensures that content remains striking and impactful regardless of ambient lighting conditions, setting a new standard for see-through display performance. Vuzix' large portfolio of waveguide patents and design know-how will allow customers to specify unique shapes and sizes well beyond those used in conventional smart glasses and other see-through displays. Vuzix has developed custom manufacturing processes and equipment to make these large format waveguides a reality.

"We continue to expand and enhance our waveguide design and production capabilities. Large format waveguides are just the latest example of our expanding industry leadership," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix. "The global commercial to defense heads-up display (HUD) markets today are well established with billions of dollars being invested on an annual basis and are forecasted to grow on an annual basis over the next decade.  We see numerous use cases and business opportunities for larger form factors across numerous industry verticals and look forward to working with both new and existing customers to integrate our custom-designed solutions into their finished products."
